These shoes are terrible! I ordered these for my little sister who is just starting pointe, she is a size 8.5 with high arches, and a square shaped foot. We ordered a size 9.0 M and a W (just to be safe) The M was ridiculously small, and the W barely fit. The shoe itself looks cheap, did not support my sisters foot at all! I do not think it would have lasted 15min in class before breaking . I will not be buying this shoe again..
Beautiful shoes arrived to me after I had inquired about the sizing with Discount Dances question/answer post. While I was told that they size approximately to a street shoe, the sizing chart is VASTLY wrong and at least a size and a half smaller than a street size. Beautiful quality and construction but buyer beware when ordering--order up!
